In general, Marvel event handbooks are a quick recap, a visual Wikipedia, of story details that can help readers understand the players, reasons, and storylines applicable to the event comic. While this is true of the X-Men: X of Swords handbook, there’s so much we still don’t know, and so many fascinating mysteries in the event and the Hickman era of X-Men at large, that I was deeply engaged with the handbook’s 50+ pages hunting for clues.
Today I’ll answer:
- What are the most interesting secrets and ideas present in the handbook comic?
- What surprising character inclusions promise much more to come in X of Swords?
- Theories and predictions for what’s to come in X-Men!
Spoilers for X-Men comics will follow!
